Spellmon Takes Sportsman 30

Jimmy Spellmon speeds to Sportsman Modified victory during NAPA Super DIRT Week

Spellmon picks up prestigious NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week XLIII DIRTcar Sportsman Modified Championship 30 win

 

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – October 12, 2014 – Jimmy Spellmon, of Butler, N.Y., let flag to flag to pick up Sunday’s DIRTcar Sportsman Modified Championship 30 during NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week XLIII.

 

Spellmon started on the pole after making fast time earlier in the week and charged to a significant lead early on. Krummel followed from second and started to close the gap in lap 15. James Henry, of Niagara Falls, N.Y., was working his way forward, moving from his fifth-place starting position to fourth in the first lap and passing Mike Butler for third in lap 18

 

Corey Wheeler’ s No. 47s spun in lap 20 to bring the caution back to the racetrack, and the No. 1m Mathieu Desjardins slowed down the field again on the restart with a flat tire. When the field returned to green, Spellmon cruised back to his comfortable lead while Butler, Mike Maresca and Shane Pecore engaged in a three-way battle for fourth place. Pecore ended up winning out, with Butler taking fifth and Maresca falling to seventh after Cody McPherson sped past him for sixth.

 

With two laps to go, Syracuse rookie Krummel, then running in second, pulled up high on turn two and hit the outside wall. The No. 44 was towed off the track, leaving Henry in second.

 

“When Krummel hit the fence, it distracted the winner, but we just didn’t have a good enough car,” Henry recalled of Sunday’s 30-lapper. “We come down here to hvae a good time, and anytime you finish in the top five at Syracuse, it’s a good day. You get to race against the best of the best, you get to showcase what you’ve got with the best people.”

 

Pecore picked up third, Butler fourth and McPherson rounded out the top five.

 

Findings during Spellmon’s post-race inspection led DIRTcar officials to penalize the driver. Officials levied a $4,000 fine and made Spellmon ineligible to received DIRTcar Sportsman Modified Series points for the race.
